The Visceral Metaphor: a contemplation on the invaded self
Miller, Leanne Margaret
MetadataShow full metadata
This practice-led thesis explores the disruptive metaphor in relation to ideas of loss, irresolution and the photographic. It is centred around the researcher’s experience of a home invasion. Through the process of grief, the body is considered for its expressive, visceral and morphological properties. In photographic prints and moving image sequences, enigmatic metaphors operate as an extension of the corporeal. In the spatio-temporal dimension of the work, images are constructed (and deconstructed) through a series of instantaneous moments: repeating, multiplying and becoming.
